Mallory Wahlstrom Wright: Finding Your Unique Light

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

“I’m getting my self-esteem from looking in . . . I have worth in my trying.” 

Although Mallory Wahlstrom Wright was an accomplished musician, dancer, and athlete, she suffered immensely from perfectionism-bred low self esteem.  As a way to cope with never feeling like she measured up, she turned to controlling her body and her weight.  Years of this behavior led to a crippled life that she wasn't sure she could make her way back from.

A series of lows pushed Mallory to seek help, but the biggest tipping point was when her older brother needed a kidney transplant--and Mallory turned out to be the *perfect* match!  Following the surgery, Mallory faced near-life-taking complications and faced a very hard recovery.  Through it all, she gained a newfound appreciation for her body and her life.  Mallory learned to seek inward and find her own unique light that she now shares from her dance and harp students, to our listeners.
